## Problem and Background
When a user types a query in the search box and hits submit, the Search event pixel should fire. When a user clicks on an autosuggest in the search box, the Suggest event pixel should fire.
Search and Suggest pixels have a required q field containing the actual query that is sent to the backend as the search query for which Bloomreach retrieves results. If a value is not set, it is an error.
## Debugging Steps
Reach out to [Bloomreach Support](🔗) for a list of raw URLs where value is not set.
Each example lists a raw URL from which Search/Suggest pixels are generated.
Go to a sample URL. It is usually a product URL.
Start typing a query into the search box and then hit submit or click on an autosuggest. Try each one separately if needed. Search/Suggest event is generated.
Verify the Search/Suggest event to check if q is empty.
BloomreachPixel Checker Chrome extension also flags this pixel issue since q is a required field for Search/Suggest pixel.
## Common Cause
Pixel implementation is not populating the q field of the Search/Suggest event.
Once you have debugged the issue, reproduce the issue and using the Simple Pixel tool, fix the pixel implementation. Reach out to the [Bloomreach Support team](🔗) if you have any questions and are not able to solve the issue.
